Get Involved with Hope and Healing

Empowering Change Through Giving, Going, and Prayer

What does it take to make two hospital ships float? Thousands of hands! Whether from financial partners, hardworking volunteers, or prayerful advocates, our mission can only set sail because of those dedicated to hope and healing. 

If you want to be part of a community that extends far beyond itself, look no further than joining our Mercy Ships family. There are so many ways to get involved!

GIVE: Extend a Helping Hand


One of the most impactful ways to contribute to Mercy Ships is through giving. Your financial support directly fuels our mission of providing free surgeries and additional medical training to the people we serve. Every donation, regardless of size, is vital in transforming lives and granting access to life-changing medical care. By contributing to Mercy Ships, you become a beacon of hope for those in desperate need of surgical interventions.

Your generosity multiplies in impact through the dedication of our skilled medical volunteers and the invaluable support of corporate partners. Together, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of individuals and communities throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Your donation empowers us to provide medical services to those with little to no access to essential healthcare.

GO: Volunteer and Make a Difference


We’re always seeking volunteers looking a more hands-on experience and a chance to impact lives directly — consider joining Mercy Ships as a volunteer.  Our organization welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds, including healthcare, teaching, engineering, and more. On board the Global Mercy or Africa Mercy, you’ll become part of a vibrant community dedicated to providing essential medical care to areas with little to no access to healthcare.

As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to expand your own skills and knowledge while contributing to the holistic healing of individuals and communities. Whether assisting in surgeries, teaching students, or working hard in the kitchens, your presence and dedication will bring hope and transformation to those in need. Embark on this transformative journey and witness the power of your actions in changing lives. See how you can use your skills:

PRAY: Unleash the Power of Prayer


No matter where you are or what resources you have, everyone can make a difference through the power of prayer. Your prayers have a profound impact on the well-being of our patients and the safety of our volunteers and crew. Mercy Ships relies on the support and prayers of individuals like you to carry out our mission of providing safe surgical care and medical training in sub-Saharan Africa.

By uplifting our organization, volunteers, and patients in your prayers, you play a vital role in facilitating healing and positive outcomes.
